RECESS APPOINTMENTS WERE MADE

WHILE THE SENATE WAS TECHNICALLY

STILL IN SESSION.

PRESIDENT SAYS THE SENATE WAS

AWAY ON A 20-DAY HOLIDAY RECESS.

VACANCIES WERE ON NATIONAL LABOR

RELATIONS BOARD.

SENATE REPUBLICANS SPENT MONTHS

BLOCKING APPOINTMENTS BECAUSE

THEY WERE BIAS.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS

EXPECTED TO APPEAL.

LOUISIANA'S REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR

CHALLENGING HIS PARTY TO CHANGE,

BOBBY JINDAL MADE THE CALL

THURSDAY EVENING IN CHARLOTTE.

HE SPECIFICALLY ADDRESSED THE

CLUMSY COMMENTS SOME REPUBLICANS

MADE ABOUT ABORTION AND RAPE

DURING THE CAMPAIGN SEASON.

BOBBY JINDAL: WE HAVE TO

STOP BEING THE STUPID PARTY.

I AM SERIOUS.

IT IS TIME FOR A NEW REPUBLICAN

PARTY THAT TALKS LIKE ADULTS AND

ARTICULATE PLANS FOR AMERICA IN

REAL TERMS.

WE HAD A NUMBER OF REPUBLICANS

THAT BRANDED THE PARTY.

WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THAT.

WENDY: POLITICAL OBSERVERS

SAY HE IS POSITIONING HIMSELF

FOR NATIONAL OFFICE.

WHITE HOUSE REPRESENTATIVES

THIS IS THE WEAKEST, THE MOST

PATHETIC ECONOMIC RECOVERY SINCE

THE DEPRESSION.

IT HAS BEEN VERY LAME.

UNEMPLOYMENT IS HIGHER THAN IT

LOOKS BECAUSE PEOPLE AREN'T EVEN

LOOKING FOR WORK.

THE STOCK MARKET WENT DOWN SO

FAST, IT IS NATURAL.

COMPANIES ARE IN BUSINESS AND

WILL FIND WAYS TO MAKE MONEY IN

A WEAK ECONOMY.

MARKET LAST?

PULL BACK, CORRECTION, PRETTY

FAR HIGHER THAN WHAT ANYBODY

BELIEVES.

THROUGH THE NUMBERS OUT.

DOW WAY OVER 100,000.

WENDY: PEOPLE SHOULD TAKE THE

LONG-TERM VIEW AND STAY IN THE

MARKET?

YES.

EVERY INDIVIDUAL STOCK HAS ITS

OWN STORY.

IT WON'T BE STRAIGHT UP, IT WILL

BE SIDEWAYS WITH SCARY

CORRECTIONS.
